All I can say is that
your recipe rocked...I made them for a birthday party and the were
eaten up in no time. I didn't even get one! I did coat the wings in
flour a night before and then recoated them before frying! I used
Franks Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce. Thank you so much for sharing!
For those of you looking
for a thicker coating, double the recipe for the flour mixture and
triple dip the chicken! Also, Franks RedHot Buffalo Wing sauce is
great with these wings!
My husband loves hot
wings and says these are "outrageously good!!" We made them
together, now I know how to get my husband to help me in the
I cooked up 8 lbs of
wings for Superbowl Sunday, and everyone raved about them! The only
change to your recipe was I dried the wings on paper towels and then
dipped them in buttermilk before the flour coating. I used Franks
Red Hot and butter for the sauce. Best wings I ever tasted!
First time I’ve made
wings and these rocked!
wings would not taste good reheated. If I had to say which reheating
method would be best, I'd say in the oven, but again, I don't
We tried the sauce on
regular old fried chicken from Krogers and it was lip smakin good
I just made buffalo
strips (instead of wings) & they were delicious! My boyfriend
actually said that he wants me to make them instead of going to
Hooters. They were actually better than Hooters & it was much
cheaper to make them! I added the cheese power from mac & cheese &
they were so good!!! Thanks for this recipe!
My wife and I love the
wings at Hooters and this recipe was right on the mark. Be sure to
cut the drummies from the wing. This way they fry more evenly. I
used Franks Buffalo Sauce and followed the recipe. They were
uses Frank's RED HOT
was a freakin Great recipe. Wait, great is an
understatement..That was the bestest buffalo
wings recipe i have ever used!!! <--those are
three exclamation points! Tastes EXACTLY like
Hooter's. Thanks so much! Made me break my diet!
this recipe and it is the closest to hooters as
you're going to get. I have started using an egg
wash on my wings before putting them in the
flour. no wait time to fry them that way and it
leaves a nice coating on the wings.
Wings worked pretty good but still did not have
the thick breading that the original has. Tried
another batch with more flour and dredging the
wings several more times but it really did make
much of a difference.
definitely a terrific Hooter's imitation. I've
been making this for some time now and I might
add a few things. I've made wings with the
"Official" ingredients that Hooter's
sells in the grocery store with their specific
instructions. The secret to the thick batter is
letting them sit in the flour for a long time.
The moisture from the wings begins to make the
flour sticky instead of dry and floury. When they
are sticky then coat them again with the dry
flour. That's when they are ready for the fryer.
Also Frank's sauce is the one. The
"Official" sauce is either hot or mild
depending on the ratio of margarine to Frank's. I
use the Tupperware technique too but I might
caution that the heated wings and sauce tend to
pop the seal off if you don't burp it initially
and after every couple of shakes. Makes a mess if
this happens, so take heed.
FANTASTIC! I used FRANK'S Original RED-HOT
these wings last weekend and passed it on to a
coworker These are the best wings ever! Very
Crispy, everyone loved Thanks for the recipe
great! It would be nice to have (mild, hot, 3
mile island and Bentleys)
I took my
time with it, added a few "other"
ingredients , crushed red peppers, chili powder)
and used Cholula for hot fantastic! Best wings
recipe out there!
I send you
my compliments on I have tried many of recipes
and this is the one I am staying with my thank
you" | "I used a mixture of 1/4 cup
Tabasco and 1/4 cup Louisiana found.
I made the
like Hooters buffalo wings sauce but I put it on
chicken strips instead of wings and it was great.
I followed the recipe, but I just used Texas Pete
as the hot sauce and it tastes just like the
strips that you get from Hooters. Yummy! I've
eaten them 3 times in the past 5 days. The key is
to make the sauce in a big bowl separate and then
after you deep fry your strips put them right
into the sauce after patting on a paper towel
while they are still hot. They are great when you
reheat them too.....Anyway, thanks for the
I had some
drumettes in the freezer that I needed to use. I
tried your recipe and we thought it was REALLY
good. My husband was skeptical about them as he
says he hasn't had any good wings in a long time.
boyfriend and I were looking for a good wings
recipe and this turned out to be it. I like
making them at home because you can decide how
crispy you want them and how hot. I used the
FRANKS BUFFALO WINGS hot sauce and also added in
a SMALL amount of DAVIS INSANITY sauce. (If you
use this comment please add that Daves is to be
used with CAUTION) I also let them sit and then
dipped them in the flour again like someone
suggested. They turned out very very well. Also
its nice to make a little extra sauce for
dipping. We are going to use it on strips next
time. Thank you!
your recipe for the "Hooters" buffalo
wings...I've never been to "Hooters"
but your recipe for wings is amazing! I also
double dipped the wings in the flour mixture and
used a combination of Franks regular red hot
sauce and the "new" Franks xtra hot
sauce. My Husband and son (the two spice lovers
in the family) loved them and I will definitely
be making them again - not to mention passing the
recipe on to friends and family!!!
for the recipe. The wings were fantastic. Your a
the recipe and think they are really close to
Hooter's. They don't taste quite the same and
that may be due to using Louisiana Hot Sauce and
not Frank's. I'm going to try Frank's next. I
also thought they tasted too buttery. I used real
butter and next time I'm going to try margarine
and one with a lower fat content. Otherwise these
are really close to Hooter's. (By the way, I made
this recipe with shrimp instead of chicken
been making this recipe for buffalo wings after
every home football game for two seasons (my
boyfriend is a college coach). I have received
rave reviews from all of the coaches. I use Texas
Pete hot sauce and add a little Tabasco to the
sauce mixture. I have also substituted Bisquick
instead of flour...didn't make much difference!
recipe is the bomb. They came out just like the
original. When you use Franks buffalo wing sauce
with them, it makes the difference.
want the thick breaded kind, mix plain yogurt
with the hot sauce, dip in the washed dry wings,
then dip into the seasoned flour and bake with
melted butter drizzled over them on a cookie
sheet at 400 for 40 minutes, and they are the
best and cant be beat, i promise.
I used chicken tenders. I made these for a party
and everyone loved them. I also used Frank's.
I used this receipe along with others for
Superbowl Sunday. My guest were getting these as
soon as they came out of the grease. I still had
leftovers from the other receipe. I did'nt save
this website and spent about 20 minutes looking
for it for my next function, 4th of July get
together. I would'nt cook the wings no other way.
Excellent, just excellent!
enjoy cooking and love Hooters wings. Prior to
trying your recipe I read the comments and they
are most fitting and accurate - wonderful wings!
and I have never been to Hooters, but this recipe
was absolutely wonderful!!!! I have never had
hotwings that tasted so good!!! Who wants to go
out to eat, when you can make food this wonderful
at home? We made 24 hotwings, and only 4 are left
this recipe was so good. Thank you so much again
Robbie. I have yet to try a recipe on this site
that wasn't fantastic.. By the way, I used
Louisianna hotsauce, and it was just fine to us.
I served my wings with celery and salad.
Costa Rica y cada vez que visito USA, voy a
Hooter's y me como todas las buffalo wings que
pueda. Pero cuando encontre la receta en About y
la preparé en casa, quede facinado y son
igualitas al las de Hooter's. Tengo la ventaja de
que en mi país venden la salsa picante Frank.
(Translation: I live in Costa Rica and every time I visit the
United States I go to Hooter's and eat all the wings I can possibly
eat. When I found the recipe on "About" and prepared them (the
wings) at home, I was curious (rough translation) and they were
exactly like the ones at Hooter's. I have an advantage-in my country
they sell Frank's Hot Sauce.)
That was a
great recipe. With a little practice, I have
mastered the wings. I refrigerate the coated
chicken for at least 4 hours, turning every hour
to recover in flour. If you don't have this much
time, use buttermilk instead of water, this will
make them really crispy. I cook the wings in a
Lodge cast iron pan with a 75% vegetable oil, 25%
tried this recipe and instantly knew this was the
one that I wanted to use in my restaurant!!!
Thank you very much!!!
I try to include cooking
as part of my science classes as a "lab diversion" for my 6th, 7th,
and 8th grade students (all inner-city - poverty level) ... for
example ... when we were learning how to convert Fahrenheit to
Celsius - we made home made french fries .. and they measured temps
as the oil was heating .. we just finished a unit on skeletal
"hinge" and "ball and socket" joints .. so obviously ... we did
drumsticks and wings .. using your recipe!
These were the best wings
I've ever had and believe me I'm a picky eater when it comes to
chicken wings. I love chicken wings and could eat these 7 days a
week. I used peanut oil to cook these in and they were awesome.
I loved these wings. I
saw a lot of comments about Hooter's using Frank's...let me tell you
they are wrong. I work for US Foodservice and they buy their 911 and
3 mile sauce from Cargill/ Fontina. The rest they but from Eastern
If you add a teaspoon
each of dijon and horseradish - it kicks it up and is SO yummy, too!
Add 2 Tbs of the cheese
powder from Kraft Macaroni and Cheese to the recipe to the flour
mixture. TRUST ME!
I cooked this for my
husband and he said it is just like hotters. And the 1/2 and 1/2 hot
sauce is the hottest so if they don't like hot go light.
This recipe is AmAzInG!!!
Thank you so much!! I was the hit of this past weekend's football
party!! Everyone couldn't express enough the fabulous way these
wings turned out. I used the recipe, as is!! Thank You, Thank You,
Tried it, everyone loved
Should have saved this
website. Excellent wings! Easy to do and it made me look like a pro.
My son is the self proclaimed "expert" on wings. He's a Hooters fan
when it comes to wings. I was missing the Cayenne pepper last time,
so I had to improvise a little. He said they were right on the money
(minus the Cayenne). I loved them. Some good stuff. So good I think
I am going to expand the breading potion to legs as well. Thanks.
I made the sauce but I
put it on plain fried wings and it was the best I had ever had. If
you want it hotter, add a teaspoon of Grace Hot Pepper Sauce.
These are the best wings
I've ever made!!!
I followed your recipe
right by the book, but, I also double dipped the wings in the wing
mixture before frying. Oh my gosh, these were exactly like those at
Hooters. My husband and friends love this recipe. Thank you .
I absolutely LOVE this
recipe! We live in Germany and have the only hooters in Germany
about 30 mins away. But with the Euro being so high, it's hard to
imagine paying so much. So I started making them at home and they
have become a favorite! My husband will invite half his company over
for these and all I've had is good comments!
Thank you so much for the
recipe!! My husband and I thought they were awesome!! We did them
over night in the flour but also added 1 cup cornmeal to make them
extra crispy! Thanks again! THEY'RE AWESOME!!
WOW!!! Thank you so much
for recipe.. I received the best compliments and I made sure to give
your recipe tons of credit!
Incredibly good. Just
like Hooters; I almost msde my wife put on a sexy top and shorts so
I could order a cold beer with my hot wings. Use the medium suuce,
the mild is too mild. AWESOME!!!
This recipe was awesome.
I have been looking for a hot wing breaded recipe like this. My
husband said it was the best he's ever had. I cut the butter in half
for the sauce and after making several hot wings added BBQ sauce to
make hot BBQ wings
I worked at Hooters and
they definitely don't use Frank's. They have their own brand of
sauce. Also, they do let the wings sit in flour for hours before
frying them, which makes the crispy coating.
Oh my my my this recipe
is DELICIOUS on chicken strips! The recipe is extremely easy and
quick. To make them with a thick coating, flour and refrigerate the
strips and before frying dip wings in buttermilk( add a little hot
sauce of choice to buttermilk for xtra kick!). I used Louisiana Wing
Sauce, real butter, and Frank's Hot Sauce for the wing sauce. Also
bake the wings in oven @ 350 for about 5- 10 min. makes them crispy
and thickens the buffalo sauce. Kudos to you Robbie, Kudos to you!!!
I've made this receipe
for the last 3 years for Superbowl...and have modified it slightly
to get the wings a little spicier...I add red pepper and ground
chili pepper to the flour mixture as well as doubling the cayene
pepper and papirika...I usually coat the wings 3-4 times with the
flour mixture...leaving in the fridge for around 45 minutes between
coatings,,,I have not yet tried the egg coating or butermilk coating
as of yet but it does seem tempting...perhaps for next years super
Great recipe! I've made
this several times now, however I bake my wings instead of frying
them. I also use half of the butter called for as I don't find this
affects the taste any. I have been making them with Louisiana hot
sauce, but will try Frank's next!
I made these and I added
1/2 package good seasons italian dressing mix to the sauce and
simmered 10 minutes. They were all gone in no time.
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS
RECIPE.. I DON'T EVER HAVE TO GO TO HOOTERS AGAIN.Wings are great!!!
Hi All! I love this
recipe and if you want the flour to stick better to the chicken,
whisk two eggs, 1/2 cup milk, and two cups water together and dip
chicken in the "milk-wash" before coating. Thanks for this recipe!
I made these wings for my
son's birthday and they were fantastic. I made the buffalo and the
KFC BBQ. Both are excellent. I would recommend this recipe to
everyone who likes wings.
i followed the recipe
just as you had it and "WOW", Supergood wings. i used the "Hooters "
brand sauce and it came out great, thanks!
I went with the Hooters
wing breading I bought at Kroger (local grocery store) but I did cut
in some ground cayenne pepper to the breading mix. I also fried the
wings in 100% pure peanut oil in my turkey fryer for 13 minutes like
you suggested. I tossed the wings in Franks red hot, and butter mix
like you did, and KA-BOOM! Unbelievable! I can't wait til I make
them again! Probably tomorrow! Thanks again! F.Y.I., in the turkey
fryer, you can cook more wings at once! To please a crowd.
I am new to making wings
but have been eating them forever and am very picky. I tried this
recipe and these came out fantastic. Now I can make these at my
house and save a fortune and these taste way better than any
restaraunt wings and buffalo chickens. Just like Hooters or better.
I'm making some for dinner tonight for my family. Thanks!
The wings turned out
great!! It's like having a HOOTER'S right at home .Except for the
wowowowow!!!! i was so
skeptical because i love hooters wings. i didnt want to be
disappointed so i kept putting off trying to make these wings. i am
so glad i finally did. delicious! cant wait to surprise my friends
with this recipe.
Our Hooter's closed a few
months ago and we have been unable to find Buffalo wings we like as
much as theirs, until now. This recipe is dead on and maybe even
better. Thank you soooo much. You have saved the day.
Good recipe! I did some
experimenting with the sauce, and got it to be just like theirs!
Start with Franks Red Hot in a pan, add a little fresh garlic, and
melt in some salted butter (about 2 Tbsp per batch). Let it thicken
up then toss your wing in a bowl with it! (O, and a little bit goes
a long way bc of the thickness!)
My husband is extremely
picky about his hot wings. We were actually discussing going out to
Beef O'Bradys to eat for hot wings. After calling and seeing they
were $30 for 50 wings, we decided against it. I remembered this
recipe and happened to have it bookmarked! When my husband found out
I had bought more wings at the store he was thrilled! He said this
recipe is the best he's ever had, including in restaurants! I was
beaming. Thanks for making me his favorite wings cook!
Best wing recipe ever you
can do at home! I made 50 wings for a party and none were left over!
They were also a big hit at my july 4th party! My friends request
these at every party I attend!
I double batter the wings
to get an extra thick coat of breading. I coat the wings with the
flour mixture and let them rest in the fridge for 1 hour. Then I mix
1 egg with 1 cup milk, dip each wing and then into the flour. I then
put in the fridge for another hour. I will then check occasionally
to recoat with flour (so the wings dont all get sticky). For 20
wings I use 4 times the normal recipe. One trick if you are pressed
for time is to stick in freezer to get them cold fast. You have to
cold wings when you put them in the oil. To really enjoy them you
have to watch the Vols play football.
I love it cause words
can't explain how good they are.
This recipe is awesome!
The wings were really good, But pls nobody use tabassco for ur hot
sauce... not good! Usually I use a different hot sauce.. And the
this recipe was so
on!!!!I loved it and def will make again
Ever since I found this
recipe I have loved it. However I decided to do some experimenting
and have found somethings that make this recipe even better. Instead
of using paprika I use 1/2 tsp of southwest chipotle spice, add 1/2
tsp of creole spice and when heating up the hot sauce and butter I
add in 1 Tbs of crushed red peppers 1 Tbs of vineger and 1 Tbs of
Colgin Liquid Smoke(hickory. And i use Texas Pete hot sauce. Ever
since i started making them this way I cant get the wings made fast
enough for people to eat.
My greatest food critics
- my teenagers and their friends absolutely love it!!! That's what
goes out first whenever I make it and they always want more. It's
their special treat!
I just finished making
and eating these wings. To frickin' die for!!! OMG they are so good,
so much better than anything you'd get at a restaraunt forsure!
Absolutely love your website!!!
This is the only one i
will use. i preseason my wings in my own spices overnight. then i
use your recipe to complete the process. this is the only recipe i
will use. its great. thank you
i've used this recipe
many times over the past few years and everytime it's a hit ...the
only change i've made is to use seasoning salt instead of regular
salt ... will definately have to try adding cheese powder next
I like to use this recipe
on chicken thighs not wings. You have to fry the thighs for a long
time to cook them through (par-boil, or nuke first). There is so
much more meat on the thigh than the wing, and it tastes just that
I live in the Czech
Republic, and wings are not easy to come by here. I was so glad I
was able to use this recipe to make my own, and they came out
fantastic. Reminded me of good old wings I got back in California.
Every time I've made
wings everyone love's them, I hate to say it but better than
I HAVE USED HIS RECIPE
BEFORE AND LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS BOMB
I love these wings!!
Recipe was excellent! I'm addicted!
Killer Wing recipe! Just
make sure to dip the chicken wing into buttermilk! Wings will come
out juicy. Use it w/Franks hot sauce, and compliment it w/the Bleu
Cheese dressing recipe "Charter House". your guests will not stop
eating! Thanks for the recipe!
Love your recipe just the
way it is. Am having a gigantic family get together and will be
making about 40 lbs. of wings. Thank you for sharing!
awesome! Much better than
Hooter's at the bar! Thanks!
This recipe was a HUGE
hit at my Superbowl party this year! I followed the directions
exactly like it said accept I coated the chicken wings 3 times and
used the Buffalo Wild WIngs sauces and they came out BETTER than at
BW3's. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the awesome recipe. Absolutely
I made these wings
(double dipped in batter) for the Super Bowl yesterday...my wife
said "these are the best wings I've ever had!" Great recipe, thanks
I used boneless chicken
instead, (like others above did) but when I make the sauce I put 1
and a half tablespoons of cornstarch in it and then bring to a boil.
The sauce thickens and sticks to the tenders(or wings)better. Made
them about 10 times in the past 3 weeks. Best tenders I've ever had.
Thanks Robbie, Mike
My husband and I are big
chicken wing fans and I wanted to try making them homemade for the
Super Bowl game. I followed this recipe and they turned out awesome.
My husband's exact words - "these are the best wings I've ever had
from any restaurant". So, I had to buy your book!
I HAD 20LBS OF BREADED
CHICKEN WINGS IN THE FREEZER TO FRY FOR A SUPERBOWL PARTY, AND WAS
THRILLED WHEN I FOUND YOUR RECIPE. EVEN THOUGH THE WINGS WERE
BREADED, I THAWED THEM, AND LET THEM SIT FOR AN HOUR IN YOUR FLOUR
MIXTURE. I DIDN'T HAVE FRANK'S SAUCE ON HAND, SO I USED BUTTER,
CAYENNE, PAPRIKA,CRACKED PEPPER AND LOUISIANA HOT SAUCE. I MELTED
THIS MIXTURE AND DRIZZLED IT OVER THE WINGS IN A PLASTIC CONTAINER
LIKE YOU SAID AND "SHAKE..SHAKE! VIOLA!...FABULOUS WINGS! THEY WILL
BE A GREAT HIT AT THE PARTY. CAN'T WAIT TO USE FRANK'S SAUCE NEXT
These are by far the BEST
wings my boyfriend and I have EVER had. He likes them so much he
eats them for breakfast sometimes! DELICIOUS recipe!!! We use the
pre-made Hooters wing sauce that you can buy at the grocery store,
makes them taste authentic :)
what is interesting is
all the good comments seem to make it on here, none of the bad. they
were bland, rubbery, and just overall naaasty
These were the best wings
EVER!!! Thank you so much.
very good recipie/great
tast/ but they don't remain crispy enough/ I h ad some at a
resturant and they were still a little crisp
I use boneless skinless
breasts cut in bite-sized pieces. We call them Buffalo Boobs. Have
made them on MULTIPLE occasions and never had anyone dislike them.
Most of the time they are eaten up very, very quickly.
I started making these
several months ago (.. and I can't cook worth a darn!). Without
exception, everyone who has tasted this proclaims them to be the
best they've ever tasted. (I generally make at least 2 - 3 dozen
with different sauces .. and they ALL go.. FAST!!). Thanks so much
for this terrific croud pleaser!
my wife usually doesn't
like wings but after I made these she said that this is how wings
are supposed to taste, I just made them according to the recipe, I
don't have a proper deep fryer but I think I will get one to be able
to make these quicker and in a bigger batch
this recipe is GREAT!!! i
made them last night and i dont think i will ever go to hooters
again. it is the perfect recipe. will make these for christmas and
for the superbowl. just AWESOME!!!
I first tried this recipe
over the summer and used the side burner on the outdoor grill, they
were FABULOUS! The only problem was I ended up having half the
neighborhood over and ran out of wings. You MUST try these, they are
I have used this recipe
from teh first day that I found it. people rave over my wings. I
gave them teh recipe and they absolutely love it thank you Robbie
I made this recipe and my
husband loved it!!! The best wings ever!
WOW!!! this recipe is
really good!! thank you so much!!i made this 3 times last week and
made some for thanksgiving.. i used franks regular hot sauce and it
taste and smells like WindStop in california. anywayz, thanks
again.. oh, bbq chicken wings was good too.
This is GREATNESS! Just
like the real deal.
Many people think Buffalo wings can be made with any hot sauce. Not
true. The original recipe was with Frank's. You can make hot wings
form any hot sauce, but only Frank's will make a true Buffalo wing
sauce. Tabasco doesn't work. There is great argument in Buffalo
about whether the wings are dippend in the blue cheese dressing, or
ony the celery. Fights start amongst friends over this. For Buffalo
wings at breakfast, accompany with Genesee beer. Genny is very
smooth and is a great breakfast beer.
Buy the big complete
chicken wings and then cut off the wing tip and the extra strip of
skin between the 'leg' and the 'wing'. This gives you a meatier wing
and not so much skin. I keep mine in stone ground high altitude
flour and continually reflour them. I swear they grow two times this
way! To the Franks Hot sauce and butter add a couple tablespoons of
Rice Vinegar (look in the Oriental section of your favorite store)to
give the wings a little snap to the nostrils without making them
hotter to the taste. Great stuff!
This receipe is most
awesome!!!! Even my in-laws love my wings!!!
Hey folks,. My sweetheart
loves Hooter's wings. Because we go to so many outdoor concerts in
the summer, I try to vary what we take along for a picnic dinner. I
saw this recipe and decided to try to make it. Since I hate to fry
anything (fattening and bad for cholesterol), I thought I might try
to change a few things to get the good hot taste of Hooters without
frying. the sauce was great. I dipped the wings in an egg/milk
mixture to which I added hot sauce. I combined all dry ingredients,
and coated the wings. Laid all of them out on a foil covered baking
dish. set oven for 375'. Drizzled hot sauce mixture (tabasco, butter
and vinegar) over the ready to bake wings. Baked wings for 40 min.
Used the remaining hot sauce for dipping afterwards along with blue
cheese dressing. Would have brushed more sauce on wings before
baking or immediately after if I wasn't afraid they would have been
to hot. delicious and not so fattening.
